The illustration portrays a typical installation for Viper's Ladle Refractory Monitoring system using FLIR compact A-series cameras (or any FLIR A-series camera). Viper's design places three cameras around the ladle and a fourth camera to monitor from underneath. The camera's digital data stream is connected via Ethernet to the ViperVision control system. The ViperVision software controls all camera functions, collect temperature data, displays thermal images and analyzes data.
Learn more by reviewing our customer case study. The Refractory Engineer says he relies on the alarm system within the [ViperVision] software for protection from breakouts. He begins every day by reviewing a thermal image of each ladle looking for abnormalities.
Improved safety for plant personnel and reduced risk of damage to plant equipment
Prevention of metal breakouts by detection of abnormal temperature increases
Increased efficiency of ladle lifetime with early detection allowing for selective repairs as opposed to full lining replacement
Increased revenue with consistent production
